Internal Medicine / Hematology (adult patients)
The Division of Hematology includes 10 full-time faculty members with a clinical practice. These physicians represent excellence in basic science and collaborative care.
Primary hematologic (blood) disorders account for only a small number of patients with medical illnesses, yet they represent a much larger component of medical complications. This leads hematologists to interact with many other disciplines in the course of patient care.
The Division focuses on patients with non-malignant disorders, including diseases of red blood cells, platelets, and the coagulation and fibrinolytic pathways.
Inpatient consultation at Barnes-Jewish Hospital is at the core of Clinical Hematology for patients with hematologic disorders, including patients with hematologic complications from non-hematologic diseases and therapies.
Our hematologists monitor patients with primary hematologic diseases in the ambulatory (outpatient) setting. These patients, including those with sickle cell disease, hemophilia and acquired chronic illnesses such as polycythemia vera and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), often require continuing or intermittent medical care.
